Twenty-five years ago through the vision of CSULB's Black Student Union, the Black Consciousness Conference was established to address prevalent issues of the Black Community.  This year's conference will take a reflective look at the role of the Black student in shaping the consciousness of America through activism.  The goal of our collective reflection is to celebrate from which we've come, and to clarify where we are headed.
